007 Fact Files - The Girls


The James Bond Girls have become as famous as Agent 007 himself. With exotic and far out names like Honey, Kissy, Pussy, Plenty, Tilly, Holly, Stacy, Tracy, Aki, Rosie, Bibi, Lupe, Magda, Pola, Kara, and Jinx – it’s no wonder!
Some good, some bad – but never ugly (on the outside anyway), the women who grace Bond’s adventures are as necessary to 007’s screen existence as his cars, gadgets, and guns – but not necessarily in that order! Some try to woo him while others try to do him (in), but all succumb to the Bond charm in the end.

Take a look at the files of just a few of the women who have graced the world of James Bond 007 and see for yourself.
